Unrest here at WFU!
I’m very excited to say that Wake Forest University will be holding a screening of “Unrest” today at 6pm in Broyhill Auditorium, Farrell Hall. The screening will be free and open to the public, and there will be a panel discussion afterwards that will, health permitting, include me.
I’ll probably discuss the connection between ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, and Lyme disease,
not to mention the super awesome, incredible, wonderful time I had trekking from doctor to doctor being told they had no proof that I was ill and my problems could all be cured by sufficient exercise. Funnily enough, that turned out not to be the case. Funnily enough, my ability to walk declined precipitously when I got sick in very obvious and measurable ways, and the more I tried to build up my strength, the weaker and sicker I got, until now I often have to crawl on my hands and knees to get up a single flight of stairs, with the sure and certain knowledge that it could get worse and very well might. Funnily enough, I did in fact have Lyme disease, just like I’d always thought. I get a good laugh out of all those things every time I think about them, I tell you what.
That being said, “Unrest” is a great film and if you’re in the Triad area, you should come by and see it and, the good Lord willing and the Creek don’t rise, say hi to me too.
Just a reminder that The Breathing Sea I is shortlisted for the Literary category in The 50 Best Indie Books of 2017 contest, and votes would be greatly appreciated! You can cast your vote here.
